“Hi There! I had the opportunity to take a Spanish course in Bilbao in summer time and it was awesome!!. I learned tons of Spanish! It was really rewarding to have direct contact with Spanish-speakers and also to discover this undiscovered secret of Spain called Bilbao. I met a lot of young people coming from all over the world and we had lots of fun together. Above all I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere I found there. The staff was young and dynamic and we had good times together: we went to the clubs, had lots of parties and enjoyed many of the famous events in Spain!!”
